Lime Trees and Sap

Swilks added on July 21, 2014 | Answered

I think my lime tree is dripping sap onto the ground below it. There are hundreds of flies on the garden furniture, trampoline, etc. I was wondering what's caused this (only happened in the last three days - lots of heat and lots of rain), and how to fix the problem - short and long term? It's a HUGE tree, by the way, so I don't think simply spraying it is an option.
